I’m trying to solve the server problems with a buddy of mine. Patrick is holding down the fort as best he can.

No, we didn’t have a giveaway that you missed (though one should be coming up soon). No, this is me declaring a winner in the battle my family had against the bug that seems to be going around this winter in the Midwest. As you might guess by the fact that I’m not writing about a watch here, it was the crud that took us all out.
Unfortunately, that’s put a few things behind schedule (like the missing wrapup article over the weekend), but I’m hoping to get things back on track here in a few days. Thanks for your patience, and I hope you and yours are staying healthy.

With the crazy low temperatures across the U.S. today (it’s currently -14° F where I’m at, with a mess of snow), it got me to thinking about how happy (or not) our beloved watches would be outside in these temps. Sure, a digital piece wouldn’t have as many moving parts, but LCDs don’t like the cold, and an analog display might still have problems. What if you wanted a mechanical on your wrist?

As I’ve written about in articles here in the past, our current wrist watches owe their existence to the pocket watches that preceded. While we may be able to appreciate these ancestors, I doubt many of us are wearing waistcoats with the appropriate pocket to store a pocket watch in. This means that any antique pocket watch you might have is relegated to banging around in your pants pocket, or just sits in a drawer collecting dust. What if there was a way to showcase the watch and make use of it at the same time? Continue Reading

The it in this case referring to after-sales service. Often times, when we’re looking to buy a watch, having it serviced is the furthest thing from our minds. Of course, if you’re buying a mechanical watch, service is inevitable – any machine with moving parts is going to need some TLC now and again. Continue Reading
